If this serpent's long, winding torso is too tall for your pumpkin, there's an easy fix -- print out the stencil pattern, then resize it with a photocopier to fit. Alternatively, you could buy a taller pumpkin to carve your dragon and use your smaller pumpkin for pie. We're certain your family wouldn't mind!

To carve:

1. Cut out the base of your pumpkin and scoop out the slimy innards. Scrape the pumpkin flesh thinnest on the side you're planning to carve; no thicker than 1" is preferable.

2. Attach your printed stencil to the pumpkin with tape. Poke along stencil lines with a pin tool, pricking into the pumpkin's surface. Keep pin pricks closely spaced.

3. Remove the stencil and etch areas within dotted lines on the printed stencil. To etch, use a scraper tool to peel off the pumpkin's top layer.

4. Carve areas within solid lines on the printed stencil.

5. Add a lit candle to your pumpkin's interior.
